I am having problems with my Mac book Pro. On occasion it seems like the power button is not responsive, meaning when I push the power button the machine does not startup.

My usual fix is to remove the battery/replace the battery, disconnect and reconnect the power. At other intervals I remove the power supply and battery and let it sit for an hour.

The main problem is that it happens at different intervals, there is no common pattern to this madness.

I am begging to think this may be a rotten Apple….
Any assistance would be appreciated!

P.s: I am running boot camp w/XP
